Abstract

The purpose of this exploratory research was to examine the relationship between the corporate culture of four-year hospitality management programs and the leadership styles of individuals responsible for leading these programs. Separate instruments were used to survey faculty and program heads of four-year hospitality management programs in an attempt to explore numerous research questions. Certain questions focused on the leadership styles of individuals in positions of authority within the program's administration. Other questions were geared toward evaluating the strength of the program's culture measured along a number of criteria. By examining these questions a theoretical relationship between leadership and culture was identified and a hypothesis for future research was suggested.
